"Hi Jon, I went sleuthing and six of your packing tape collages were bound into a book that I entered in an  exhibition at San Francisco Center for the Book (2014). Obviously I liked them!"

"We all began  our mail art journey at a particular point in our lives. Someone said--mail art is not rational--maybe it is--maybe not. But it has its own 'order' for each of us and we explore and change that order over time. Plus our…"
